In Still Pretty, story expert Lani Diane Rich and film scholar Noelle LaCroix dive deep into the symbolism and narrative in Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
The last episode of Still Pretty, celebrated with our honorary third host, Dr. Kelly Jones. Stay tuned for listener messages at the end. Thank you all.
That was nifty!
For the last episode of Buffy, Noelle and Lani talk about cookie dough shippers, how Buffy changed television history, and wonder who gets to choose as they talk about Chosen (S7.22).
Bonus: Dear Writer
Dear Writer is a Substack newsletter put out by Lani that sends two letters a week; one inspirational digest on Wednesdays, and a longer personal letter with the private podcast on Saturdays; this is that podcast.
End of Days (S7.21)
I look good for my age.
Lani and Noelle discuss the matriarchy in the Buffyverse, Anya as the perfect woman and the sacrifices you shouldn’t make for the sake of a stupid cliffhanger as they talk about End of Days (S7.21).
I love what you are. I love how you try.
Lani and Noelle take a look at visual storytelling, Faith as a leader, and love stories v. romances when they talk about Touched (S7.20)
Empty Places (S7.19)
It’s not a road trip. It’s a covert operation.
Lani and Noelle talk about dark moments and the feminine redemption arc in Empty Places (S7.19)
THE BEST PODCAST EVER
This podcast along with Still Dead is my saving grace, I don’t know where I’d be without the Chipperish crew! I love you all so much x
Really passionate Buffy discussion
Lani might be the only person who loves Spike more than me? Hahaha. But seriously this pod is great :) The hosts both super enjoy the world and these characters and speak really lovingly. It’s cool to also learn more about structure and being able to understand why some plots work, and some fall flat, etc.
Best Buffy podcast
Love Buffy. Love an intelligent and informative discussion about Buffy even more.
